Falling Bridges, Sink Holes, What’s Next?

When I heard the news of the sink hole on I-25 earlier this week, I couldn’t help but think about the bridge collapse in Minneapolis last year.

In the United States, we don’t expect these kinds of things to happen. Barring weather, construction and (more recently) terror threats, we expect our infrastructure to be safe and functioning properly. Is it time to launch a governmental agency, much like the Department of Homeland Security, to study possible infrastructure and engineering problems?

Minneapolis and Denver are not exactly the oldest cities in the country – and that’s exactly what worries me. What about the aging pipelines, bridges and tunnels in cities like New York, Boston and Philadelphia. Given the recent bridge and sink hole events, doesn’t logic say that there is a disaster coming our way in one of these cities?

  1. It’s called the Department of Transportation douchebag. They handle all roads & bridges, the “infrastructure” that you talk about. http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/bridge/index.htm
    There’s this thing called the internet, that Al Gore invented, where you can find this information out. If you really looked, you could find out that one of your Senators, Wayne Allard, was on a subcommittee on transportation. http://allard.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Committees.Home
    Feel free to call or e-mail him and voice your concerns, instead of sitting on your fucking turkey bloated fat ass and blogging your problems you fat fucking nerd.
